You need to locate and remove the filter to clean it, it should tell you where it is in your user instructions.
On most washers, they are usually located at the bottom front of the washer.Turn anti-clockwise to remove and clean.
Hope this helps.

Hello,

Yes.
There are several reasons that a washing machine won't drain or spin. The cause could be something as easy as a clog or something difficult that will need a licensed repairman. Start with the simplest possible cause and work down to the more difficult causes.

INSTRUCTION BELOW

  • A washing machine won't spin if the water can't drain. Check hoses for any kinks or clogs that may prevent the water from draining. If a hose has kinks, try to straighten out the kinked hose. If it can't be straighten sufficiently, replace the hose. If hoses are not kinked, check for clogged hoses. This can be done by using the screwdrivers to remove the hoses and looking for clogs or running a water hose through the clogged hose to remove the clog. Use the rags and bucket to clean up the water that comes out of the hoses when they are disconnected. Once the clog is cleared, put the drain hose back into place. The washer should drain and spin now if a clogged or kinked hose was the problem.
  • 2 If the washer still won't drain or spin, check to see if the lid is not closing all the way or if the lid switch is not clicking into place. Close the lid and make sure that it closes all the way down. When the lid closes, the lid switch should click. If there is no clicking sound, then the switch may need to be replaced. Follow manufacturer's directions for replacing the switch. If the lid does not close all the way, visually check for signs that the lid is bent. If bent, try to bend it back into place.
  • 3 Loose or broken belts could also prevent a washing machine from draining or spinning. Pull the washer away from the wall and, using the screwdrivers and wrenches, remove the back panel. Using the flashlight, visually check for any broken or loose belts. Replace any broken or loose belts. Although replacing washing machine belts is difficult, anyone who has replaced belts on a car, lawn mower or even a bicycle chain should be able to accomplish the task.
  • 4 Another possibility for a washing machine to not spin or drain is the pump. With the back panel still off the washer, check the pump with the voltmeter to ensure that the pump is getting power. If the washer is getting power, turn on the washer and listen to find out if the pump is running but the water is still not draining. It may be necessary to remove the pump and clean it or to replace the pump with a new one. Once the pump is replaced, turn on the washer to determine if it will now drain and spin.
  • 5 If all of the above steps fail to produce a washing machine that drains or spins, then it is time to call a professional repairman. Use the screwdrivers and wrenches to replace the panel on the washer and push it back against the wall

    My zanussi zwg 6141p washing machine is calling water at start of cycle but is not going into drawer to swill out detergent , is also stopping half way with the green light on the start button flashin


    Some appliances malfunction can be displayed in hexadecimal or in binary code.
    So your device is defective and shows you what's wrong. You have to count how many times flashes red light and how many times flashes green light. Red light shows the first error number and green light the second error number.
    For example: you forgot to close the door and you started washing machine. After some time (timeout) will generate an alarm. Four times will flash red light and once the green light which means error code " E41 " or "Open door"
    " E20 " means "No drain water"
    " E10 " means "No fill up water"

    Water wont drain, think filter is clogged.


    Hi tammylynn131,

    Before the Spin Cycle should start, all water must be drained out of the machine. If it does not start, it could likely mean the Drain pump may be clogged. Please follow my below tip on the fix:

    ACCESS, DRAIN & CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER...

    If this does not help, the drain pump may be faulty.

    Kind Regards

    Symbols on fridge freezer- i have a flashing symbol that looks like a test tube with a rounded end on hotpoint fridge freezer- what does it mean?


    Is the water draining from the unit? It sounds to me like that symbol is telling you the water that has accumulated from removing the moisture in the conditioned air is full and needs to be drained.

    Hoover Nextra HNF2127 washing machine. Lights flashing at finish


    Hi


    Thanks for using FixYa. The start and pre-wash usually flash due to a clogged drain hose or the water pump. You’ll need to drain the water out of the base and also check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine). If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


    Thanks

    Keeps flashing SE


    I recently had this happen but with no error message on my model, the rinse symbol just kept flashing and nothing was happening. I tried running a spin cycle or rinse and spin. The rinse & spin started but stopped when it got to spin. I finally determined that the water was not draining out. I ended up emptying a bucket and a half of water out of the emergency valve near the floor (which spills water everywhere) and found a lint ball that was plugging it. After this I tried running just a spin cycle and it worked.
